C60 - Carbon 60 Products
Carbon 60 (also known as C60) is a spherical form of carbon comprising of 60 atoms. It was discovered in 1985 by a group of scientists, principally; Harry Kroto, Richard Smalley and Bob Curl who all went on to win the Nobel Prize in 1996 for their discovery. It was named by the trio a "Buckminster Fullerene" or "Buckyball", after Buckminster Fuller who designed many geodesic dome structures that resemble the molecule. Over 25 years later in 2012, a now famous research study by T Baati et al found that C60 molecules suspended in Olive Oil prolonged the lives of the rats used in the study by 90%. At Indigo Herbs we are delighted to have sourced exceptionally high quality, completely solvent free Carbon 60, suspended in either Olive Oil or Coconut Oil.
